Today pastors and church leaders have an unparalleled opportunity to shape a biblical vision for Kingdom giving. According to a Christian Stewardship Association survey, there has been a 26-year decline in giving percentages among evangelicals. Christian giving has shrunk one and a half to three and a half percent, with ’only 1 or 2 out of 10 Christians’ giving 10 percent of their income to the Lord’s work. Based on the foundational premise that stewardship is the management of time, talents, and treasure, Stan Toler and Elmer Towns set forth a vision for pastors and church leaders to shape the thinking in the pews with biblical principles. Developing a Giving Church is designed to merge these principles with proven methods for creating a climate for giving through stewardship education. A vital stewardship resource, Developing a Giving Church includes guidance for shaping a giving environment, suggestions for developing committed steward leaders, counsel on stewardship strategies, insights from respected leaders, and testimonies from joyful givers. Also included are stewardship sermons, anecdotes, and quotes. Paper.
